THIS BOOKING AGREEMENT (the “Agreement”) made upon this                day of                    in
the year           by and between Phlume Artist Management, (hereinafter “Manager”), whose address
is 6 Cutts Road #118, Kittery, Maine 03904, and
                         , Collectively known as the musical group                     (hereinafter
“Artist”) whose address is:


1. Appointment:
         Artist hereby appoints Manager as one of Artist’s Booking Managers throughout the world,
with respect to all Artist’s activities in the Entertainment Industry, and Manager hereby accepts such
engagement. In this capacity Manager shall work with nightclub owners, booking managers, and talent
buyers to contract performance agreements for Artist and set up single night appearances throughout the
United States.

2. Term:
         The term of this agreement is a perpetual negotiation which shall remain in effect until Artist
notifies Manager that the booking services are no longer required. Artist shall have the right to terminate
the agreement at anytime, provided that Artist delivers Manager a written notice within fourteen (14) days
of the date Manager’s duties are to cease. All engagements that are booked by Manager during an active
agreement shall be subject to commission pursuant article 3 regardless if agreement is active at the time
of the performance or not.

3. Manager’s Commission:
         As consideration for booking performances, Artist hereby agrees to pay Manager a commission
equal to the greater of $100 per month or ten percent (10%) of all Gross Compensation (8.a) income
which Artist (or any third party on Artist’s behalf or for Artist’s benefit) may hereafter receive or earn
during the term hereof from and in connection with Artist’s performance activities directly resulting from
engagements Manager has negotiated and/or contracted.

4. Scope:
         This Agreement shall not be construed to create a partnership between Artist and Manager, it
being understood that Manager shall render services hereunder as an independent contractor and may
render the same or similar services for others as well as to engage in other business activities, so long
as Manager continues to be active as a booking manager and such other activities do not interfere with
Manager’s ability to render services hereunder. It is also expressly understood that the agreement herein
stated does not cover the individuals in their solo careers. Separate agreements shall be entered into if the
individual artist(s) noted at the top of this Booking Agreement are to be represented in their solo career
by Manager. Artist also agrees that all new members either additions, or replacements, shall be bound into
this agreement with the terms stated herein, from the date of hire, under the existing clauses stated within
this agreement.

5. Expenses:
          It is anticipated that Manager may from time to time incur expenses on Artist’s behalf including,
but not limited to postal mailing, printing of press kits, fliers, letters of solicitation and packaging. If Manager
does incur such expenses which are substantiated by receipted vouchers or paid bills, Manager shall be
reimbursed therefor out of Artist’s Gross Compensation (8.a) after deduction of commissions due to
Manager pursuant to this Agreement. Manager shall obtain Artist’s express written approval prior to
incurring any such reimbursable expenses, provided, however that such approval shall not be required for
expenditures of less than $75.00 per transaction or $300.00 in the aggregate per month.




                                                                                                                 1 OF 3
6. Conflict of Interest:
          From time to time during the term of this Agreement, persons or entities owned and/or controlled,
directly or indirectly by Manager or Manager’s shareholders, officers, directors and employees, whether
acting alone or in association with others, may package entertainment programs or other presentations
in which the Artist is employed. Manager shall not be entitled to commissions hereunder based on Artist’s
Gross Compensation (8.a) by reason of the foregoing or under other agreements pursuant to which
Artist is employed by Manager, or an entity affiliated with Manager; and Manager shall not be entitled
to Commission from Artist in connection with any gross income derived by Artist from the sale, license
or grant of any literary or musical rights to manager or any firm or corporation owned or controlled
by Manager. Such relationships shall not be deemed to be a breach of this agreement or of any fiduciary
obligations of Manager to Artist, and shall not in any way affect Manager’s right to commissions hereunder
in all other instances. Manager shall fully disclose to Artist the relationship of all parties in any such
circumstances.

7. Conditions:
         As Artist may be booked in venues that have yet to be visited by Manager, Manager requests a
“feedback report” on the venue to be done after every performance within 48 hours of the show. The
report shall be submitted by way of e-mail or phone conversation by one of the Artist’s members as listed
at the top of this contract. Report on the performance shall include:
         * Total guests at the performance

         * Quality of the sound and or lights
         * Overall feeling of the venue (good, bad, “hole”)
         * Professionalism of the staff.

The report will be used to note which venues are worthy of future bookings as well as report back to
Manager total income resulting from the performance. Any additional information about the venue such as
location in town, nearest hotels, restaurants and stores will be helpful, however not needed. In lieu of the
48 hour contact requirement, Manager shall provide a worksheet for the Artist detailing all information
requested and the worksheet may be held and submitted at the end of the month, provided that the
worksheet is mailed with full payment within 30 (thirty) days of the first scheduled performance on the
worksheet.

8. Definitions:
          As used in this Agreement, the term “Gross Compensation” shall mean all forms of income or
consideration paid to Artist by reason of Artist’s performance activities in the Entertainment Industry
pursuant to contracts, engagements and commitments entered into or negotiated by Manager during the
term of this agreement. It is expressly defined that Gross compensation shall be the total amount earned
by the band for the engagement and does not take into consideration fees for the engagement such as
travel, lodging, opening bands, bar staff Engineers or equipment rental. All expenses shall be paid out post
Management commission.
